Mike and I grew up together with the best bunch of friends anyone could have ever asked for. We breathed baseball, basketball if we were not playing in little league we would be playing in backyards or school grounds. Mike was two years older than I not much difference until we came upon the age to move from little league to pony league baseball. Mike was a pitcher as I however he had breaking pitches something I had not learned at that age. As customary the older guys would enjoy breaking the younger pups into the bigger league. I had never batted against breaking pitches therefore Mike had taken upon himself to teach me the do’s and don’ts. We all begin practicing taking turns batting for a new season and Mike was pitching to the younger group. As usual I am wanting to show off to the world about how great of a hitter that I had became, however on this day it wasn’t to be. As Mike threw the first curve ball I had ever had the opportunity of seeing noting that he threw a strike, however I had jumped off the plate 5 feet thinking the pitch was going to hit me. (Mike had a smirk and smile I will never forget that day). After 10 or so pitches and a very humbling experience or after everyone had there fun with me, Mike begin teaching the pitches and how to properly hit the ball. I remember that day as it was yesterday as we did allot together in our lives growing up, however that day was special to Me and Mike as well. A great friend!
